The one thing I am passionate about...
My two most major passions are music and fitness. I would do everything to music if possible. I love talking to people about what they like to or don't like to listen to. I find you can always be surprised with someone's choices - everyone likes or listens to something that you just wouldn't have guessed!As for fitness, I've never really been into sports but since joining a gym about 5 years ago I've surprised myself at how much I love fitness. It's really fun, and it takes dedication to improve yourself. I get a real buzz from getting that extra bit out of my workout. I like to try new things all the time and never try to be skeptical.
I typically spend my leisure time
Weeknights I'm pretty much always at the gym. I am usually either doing a class or my own workout - or sometimes both! Weekends vary really - I try and train at least one of the days, but I do like to go somewhere and read, catchup with friends, or watch films.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who makes me laugh - who especially enjoys making fun of me, and not taking herself too seriously.
The first thing people notice about me
I eat a lot :) I think surprises a lot of people and people always make jokes about which lunch I'm on. I train a lot so I eat a lot!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've read a few good ones lately, but I would have to say Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series - about 6 books so far). They are crime thrillers about a recovering alcoholic detective based in Oslo. They are quite dark, but very funny and Harry is such a hero! I love books where you just really know and understand the characters - and I didn't think I could despise a villian more than Nils Bjurman from "The Girl with" series.If I had to choose one, it would be a tough call, but I would probably say The Redeemer. Harry investigates a murder of a Salvation army member, no clues, no motive - but the assasin finds he's killed the wrong man! Gripping!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Mum - sounds cheesey, but true. I owe her a lot.
- Amazing close friends
- My health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
The sample answer here is scarily true. I do come across as quite serious, but I do have a silly side which comes out a lot more once I get to know people.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Good listener, Quiet, Sweet
A little more about me
A lot of my answers are fitness/gym related, but I wouldn't consider myself a health freak. I'm not obsessed - just passionate about it. I'm a massive junk food fan really and have to tare myself away sometimes from that cheeky KFC.Also, although I don't drink and am not a big fan of going to bars, pubs etc to watch everyone get excessively drunk - I do enjoy going to a club and dancing. I'm not one of these people that seems to need to be loud and outrageous because they don't drink and feel like they have to do something else to make up for it.I'm always up for trying something new, and will always give something a go once.
